Hidden Agenda?

BY JOHN KETTLER

Going dark,” in espionage parlance, means hiding and ceasing to communicate, as when a spy goes to ground un­til things calm down. To “take it dark” means to remove something from public view, meanwhile clandestinely con­tinuing to operate whatever the asset may be. This can be as simple as moving a suddenly sensitive discussion from an open radio channel to an encrypted one, or the more complicated faking the breakdown of a satellite, or even re­porting its loss, but continuing to clandestinely receive the data….

Physics from Outside the Box

By William B. Stoecker

The standard model of modern physics is an uneasy blend of relativity theory and quantum mechanics. Relativity theory, developed by Hendrik Lorentz and Henri Poincare and Albert Einstein, supposedly explains gravity and the bending of light near massive bodies, among other things. Quantum mechanics has given us lasers and transistors and also purports to explain a good many things. But no one yet has developed, and then conclusively proven, a theory completely unifying these two pillars of modern physics. Most recently, string theory has attempted…

Mars Exploration and the “F Words”

By J. Douglas Kenyon

Most readers of this magazine are familiar with the controversy surrounding the so-called “Face on Mars.” Originally photographed by NASA’s Viking Lander in 1976, a formation on the Cydonia plain looked for all the world like an im­mense enigmatic face gazing straight up into the sky. Researcher Richard Hoagland subsequently made himself fa­mous with a book The Monuments of Mars which argued convincingly that the “Face” was the work of a lost ancient civilization and, indeed, was part of a huge complex of engineered, albeit…

Sabotaging the Search for Life on Mars The search for life on Mars, if not elsewhere, may be doomed from the start. There is real evidence that the folks at NASA and elsewhere within the space establishment may be, at least subconsciously, trying to block such a discov­ery. A few years ago when the Jet Propulsion Laboratory was forced by public pressure to take high-resolution photo­graphs of the notorious Face on Mars, the resulting publicly released image was so distorted through the use of high-and…

Is there Evidence for Life on Mars Now? Notwithstanding recent public concessions from NASA that—at least in the distant past—Mars was habitable, some observers believe the agency is withholding key evidence that life exists on Mars right now. According to the Indo-Asian News Services, influential Indian “astrobiologist” Chandra Wickramasinghe says, “… the [recently confirmed] discovery of liquid water on Mars, combined with earlier discoveries of organic substances in a meteorite that came from Mars, and also of methane in the Martian atmosphere, all point to…

Fire from Water

BY JOHN KETTLER

No, the writer didn’t flunk Chemistry. He wrote HHO, not the familiar H20, for the very good reason that it’s not water. In fact, it’s a whole new kind of gas, using a patented process inventor Denny Klein developed, a process requiring only a small amount of electricity and some distilled water. And what a gas! When it burns, it leaves only water as a combustion byproduct, yet can seemingly defy the fundamental laws which govern the behavior of gases, to include the one which…

True Mars

By William B. Stoecker

Where is the Mars of our dreams, our imaginings—the dusty red planet laced by canals, and home of ancient civilizations? There is the Mars presented by NASA and JPL (Jet Propulsion Laboratory)—an almost airless, cratered world, utterly lifeless and resembling our own Moon. Then there is the actual Mars, the true Mars, which, as we shall see, is perhaps closer to our dreams than to the representations of NASA and JPL. Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun, half again as far out as…
